Look, I understand you're not happy but your venting is NOT helpful. Please answer the questions at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 21#p275421

I still doubt that your Leaf "barely can do 50miles round trip to work". From the range tests at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 48#p273048

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, TonyWilliams determined that a '13 Leaf at a steady 100 kph (~62 mph) can achieve just a tad over 80 miles of range. Power consumption rises considerably as speed increases.
No, your statements really do indicate you didn't do the proper research. There are too many topics to cover such as charging speed situation, electrical situation at home, level 1 vs. level 2 AC charging, DC fast charging (from your earlier statements), 3.3 kW vs. 6 kW on-board charger, the range chart at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=101293
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and so on... You could've communicated w/other Leaf drivers and asked questions here and/or on various grassroots Leaf Facebook groups (I'm active on 2 of them), for example.
We also have no clue approx where you live. Can you update your location info via User Control Panel (near top) > Profile (left side)? That way, we don't need to ask in future posts/threads or do sleuthing to deduce it.
In the winter, there will be temporarily reduced battery capacity and other factors will reduce your range in winter (e.g. heater use (power hungry heater in the S and '11 and '12 Leafs), increased rolling friction from wet or snowy/slushy pavement, etc.) Your claims are more believable in below freezing temps with snow on the ground, but again, I still am not sure how you're determining "barely" making it. I have no idea how many miles/kWh you're achieving nor do I know if you're just running the heater too high instead of using heated seats and steering wheel.
You also said "try to let it coasting as much". Not sure what you're doing here. Assuming you're not coasting in Neutral (which I don't condone), if you have any regen bubbles (solid blue bubbles) to the left while "coasting", than you're not really doing it right. You'd want to minimize the amount of energy into and out of the battery due to energy conversion losses.
